4.4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
Commemorating over 300,000 deaths during the 1937 Japanese capture of the then Chinese capital, The Memorial of the Nanjing Massacre stands on a former execution and mass burial site. Two marble walls with names of 300,000 victims, halls with photographs of executions, and documents detailing the capture of Nanjing tell the gruesome story of the Japanese Imperial Army's occupation of China. Enter a coffin-shaped display hall to see a mass burial site excavated with numerous bones of victims, and visit a reconstruction of a house ransacked by soldiers. Solemn bronze sculptures and grey stone architecture punctuate gardens with pine and cypress trees. Walk around the 28,000 sq m (302,400 sq ft) grounds, and ring the large bronze bell for peace.

  • 前事不忘、後事之師。戰爭的醜陋與遺留的傷痛,並非讓人記下仇恨,但提醒後人不忘和平盛世的美好。願戰亂永遠不再。 
  • But too many people are prepared to do more than anything else as there is no Chinese, Japanese, and English descriptions out there it's hard to read the description

  • 再現了當年殘酷的歷史,警醒所有中華民族牢記歷史教訓,發奮自強,避免悲劇重演。該紀念館下了很大的功夫,建議每個來南京旅遊的人抽空參觀,免費。 
  • Great place to visit and celebrate hundreds of thousands chinese were killed by the japs... Sad the japanese cannot topple the communist part and SLAUGHTER ALL CHINESE XXD~
  • Well preserved piece of history. Some facts may be exaggerated.. but you can see the face of barbarian nations.
  • It is a very solemn place, beautifully done to show the devastation that the war brought upon the people of Nanjing.
  • amazing. you'll be stricken and moved to tears
  • I think it is a good way of learning and remembering the horrible loss and stories of the rapeing of nanjing.
